Hi <<First Name>>,
The modern guide to React state patterns

Since its inception in 2013, React has rolled out a robust set of tools to help relieve developers of some of the minutiae of creating web applications and allow them to focus on what matters.

Despite React’s many features and consistent popularity among developers, however, I have found time and again that many of us ask the same question: How do we handle complex state using React?

In this article we’ll investigate what state is, how we can organize it, and different patterns to employ as the complexity of our applications grow.

Using Forms in React

No matter what kind of app you’re writing, there’s a good chance you need at least one form.

Forms in React are often a pain, filled with verbose and boilerplate-y code.

React/Redux: pitfalls and best practices

After 2 years using React with Redux for the video platform 6play, I was able to identify good practices and pitfalls to avoid at all costs. The Bedrock team (to which I currently belong) kept the technical stack of the project up to date to take advantage of the new features of reactreact-redux and redux.

So here are my tips for maintaining and using React and Redux in your application without going mad.

This article is not an introduction to React or Redux. I recommend this documentation if you want to see how to implement it in your applications.

You could also take a look at Redux offical style guide in which you could find some of those tips and others. Note that if you use the Redux Toolkit, some of the tips/practices presented in this article are already integrated directly into the API.

Recently, santa needed my help to improve the gift generator that the North pole uses to find the perfect christmas gifts. Santa suggested that I should tweak the parameters that are sent into the generator to make it more precise.
